This advice to a traveller could be offered to those moving resources from institutional care of the elderly to true care in the home. While present plans concern the destination and mode of travel, less attention is paid to differences in the starting point. Health districts vary greatly in terms of numbers, movements and placements of their elderly populations. Numerical increases or decreases may be caused by migration of elderly people to traditional seaside retirement areas. A further attraction is the availability of nursing and residential homes in these belts. Such homes tend to multiply in a given area and draw in new residents from other districts leading to a disproportionately elderly population.
